School governing boards are responsible for working with their school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education and promotes high standards of educational achievement.The governing board has three main responsibilities:
To provide strategic direction for the school.
This is done by reviewing and agreeing the vision and ethos of the school as well as the its priorities, policies and targets.
To ensure accountability.
The governing board must use its collective skills to benefit the learners. It must gather views, ask questions and decide what is best for the school. The governing board is answerable to parents/carers and the wider community.
To ensure the sound, proper and effective use of the school's financial resources.
The governing board must make sure that the school's money is well-spent.
Governors come from all sections of the community and all walks of life. They can be parents/carers, staff at the school, local residents, leaders or business people. It is important that they can give commitment to the school and work as part of a team.
You can contact the Chair of Governors in writing via the school or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org marking your message for the attention of the Chair of Governors.
